Understanding Signs of Rx Addiction

Knowing when it’s time to seek professional help is important. But how do you know when you have an addiction? There are signs of Rx addiction that can signify that an addiction may be present.

Signs of an addiction to prescription drugs include doctor shopping, which is looking for new doctors when your current one will no longer prescribe you the medication that you desire. Losing interesting in things you used to like, spending a lot of time acquiring, using, and recovering from the substance abuse, and borrowing or stealing money to buy more drugs can be signs of Rx addiction.

A tolerance and withdrawal symptoms are two clear signs that an addiction is present. Taking your prescription with alcohol or doing something risky while under the effects of the drug, such as driving, can indicate an addiction. You may become overly defensive when questioned about your drug use or have frequent mood disturbances.

Why Rx Addiction is On the Rise

It has become exceedingly easy to get a prescription in the United States. Because Rx drugs have become so readily available, many more people are exposed to the risk of substance abuse. Some people have a greater risk of developing an addiction and are therefore more prone to forming one even if a prescription is followed.

The Most Abused Rx Medications

Among the three major categories of prescription drugs, particular brands are more abused than others. Stimulants that are the most abused include brand names such as Adderall XR, Concerta, Mydayis, Ritalin, and Dexedrine.

Among the most abused opioids include drugs such as Norco, Oxycontin, and Percocet. The brand names of prescription depressants that are often abused include Xanax, Ambien, and Valium.  

Dangers of Rx Addiction

There are many short- and long-term dangers of Rx addiction. For example, opioids abuse can lead to low blood pressure and a dangerously slowed breathing rate that can result in a coma or even death. Stimulant abuse can cause heart problems, seizures, tremors, paranoia, dangerously high body temperature and blood pressure, and aggressiveness.

Depressants misuse can lead to memory issues, slowed breathing, and low blood pressure. All three of the major Rx drug categories have an overdose risk and abuse of them can be fatal.
